The titans of UK All Companies

The UK All Companies remains a firm favourite with investors and contains a vast array of talent, but who have proven the top groups over seven years?

Lindsell Train

The CF Lindsell Train UK Equity fund is a firm favourite. With more than 18 years' experience under his belt Nick Train ranks top of the sector for seven year total returns. He has returned 206.85%, outperforming the FTSE All-Share’s 86.06% return over the same time frame. Train says that the creation of more ambitious media distribution platforms will result in the value of unique media content continuing to increase, and he looks to own much of that content.
